First Snake of the Season

By Published On: May 26th, 20200.4 min readCategories: Photos

Snakes aren’t all that uncommon here, but it’s still a little freaky when you’re just reaching down to turn on the hose and come face to face with a 4 foot gopher snake.

This poor guy was wrapped up in some bird netting and very, very stuck. He wasn’t cooperative, so it took me the better part of 30 minutes to cut him free.

I let him loose down in the vegetable garden where there’s at least two gophers operating in the open.

I’m just a guy with nearly an acre of dirt, a nice little mid-century ranch house and a near-perfect climate. But in my mind I’m a landscaper survivalist craftsman chef naturalist with a barbeque the size of a VW and my own cable TV show. I like to write about the stuff I build, grow and see here at Sage's Acre.
